Wonderland Tea Party Skirt
Artist Statement: Afternoon tea is a light meal typically eaten between 3 pm and 5 pm. The custom of drinking tea originated in England when Catherine of Braganza married Charles II in 1661 and brought the practice of drinking tea in the afternoon with her from Portugal.
Skirt was handmade from 6 different fabrics that include: red cotton with damask print, red cotton with black lace on it, black cotton, black/red/white/grey striped cotton, cotton with "teatime" print, black cotton with red floral design. It was embellished with velvet and grosgrain ribbons and black tulle.
Zips at the back with an invisible zipper.
